's not been an attempt to have stability in libya. the obama administration has been repeating the mistake that the bush administration made in iraq and afghanistan. they were focused on the military campaign but not focus on the nation building. we have paid a huge cost for that in iraq afghanistan. a lot of the arms in the arsenal of muammar gaddafi have been smuggled into countries like y fueled a the fi fresh insurgency. we have taken our eye off the ball in libya ever since the overthrow of gaddafi. that's the big issue from the hearings. host: our guest is max boot, senior fellow with the council on foreign relations. was a senior foreign policy adviser to the john mccain campaign in 2008. he is the author of a new book called "invisible armies." a little more about the faces of your book -- a little more about the thesis of your book. this idea of guerrilla warfare is not something new. guest: i exam the long history of insurgency and guerrilla warfare and it predates conventional conflicts. tribal warfare is essentially grow warfare. conventional warfare is a relatively recent inve

-- every three days they were holding the sessions. [inaudible] the obama administration made these appointments during one of these shortened breaks. that's what was challenged. the court essentially ruled that the program could not make recess appointments during such short breaks. host: the recess appointments that are coming under scrutiny are three recess appointments that were made to the national labor relations board while the senate was in recess in january 2012. the justice department, which argued on behalf of the nlrb, released a statement friday saying we disagree with the court's ruling and believe the president's recess appointments are constitutionally sound. why is it so contentious about these nlrb appointments and how might it affect decisions that were made by the nlrb while these three folks sat on the national labor relations board? guest: well, in terms of contention, you mean in terms of politically, do mean? host: mm-hmm. guest: i guess republicans are afraid of how these members will influence the decisions in labor disputes. in terms of what happens

himself for the obama administration. i know he is going to be going into the administration for some type of position. he is not a bad man. he did come down here to promote the south coast rail system, which we have been waiting for for 40 years. all liberal issues he is just a little bit too lenient. we have so much waste in government. i would like to see someone conservative in the governorship to weed out all this fraud. we go to work hard every day and we shake our heads when we come home every night. host: let's take a listen to one of the republican governors in the country who has become a leading voice in gop issues. this is chris christie in his state of the state address. he starts by talking about hurricanes in the budde goes from there. >> there is plenty of evidence that new jersey has not let's stop our turnaround. and i'm unemployment is coming down -- unemployment is coming down. 2011 was our best private sector job growth in 20 years. personal income set a record high in new jersey for the seventh quarter in a row. income tax receipts -- sales of new homes are up. consum

economic recovery and economic prosperity in america. they feel president obama is not getting behind this surplus we have. you heard the caller touch upon that when he mentioned what happened, on the moratorium on drilling. it was contested in court and the administration lost that fight. there is a question about how much obama will get behind that. yesterday he talked about climate change and other things. i think the next four years may be tough for energy producers. guest: natural gas has become so plentiful and prices have come down so much that is changing a lot of the economics of the energy industry. that plays right into the question of climate change policy. to the degree that natural gas which is cleaner than coal begins to replace coal as the primary fuel for power plants, that reduces carbon emissions. all of these things are sort of working together. the administration keeps pointing out that oil and gas production is higher than it has ever been and that is true as the economy comes back but there is an inherent tension between some of this energy policy and a job poli
